Canoeing and Kayaking

Oil Creek offers a scenic float and is classed as a beginner’s creek under normal conditions.

Water levels can change rapidly and canoeists should call the park office for current water conditions.

Generally, the canoeing season is from March to early June.

To launch in a state park, a non-motorized vessel needs a state park or PA Fish and Boat Commission launch permit.

Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission laws apply. Complete information about boating rules and regulations in Pennsylvania is available from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission.
